DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Stas’s place. As "Black Albert A2 SC2 Club". Black with a big brown head. Aroma of roast, cocoa, dark chocolate, wood, vanilla and a coconut note. Sweet flavor with chocolate, caramel, roast, dark fruits, vanilla, a coconut note and a bit of rum. Full-bodied. Great. Grew on me on more and more as I kept drinking. Also quite easy to drink for a 13% Imperial Stout.

Gerbeer (1935) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours black with fine tan head. Aromas of sweet molasses, licorice and roasted malts. Flavours are similar with additional dark chocolate and coffee. Relatively light in flavor for a Damnation. ABV is spectacularly well hidden although there is some residual warmth.

Sample @ home
Aroma is mellow and sweet with toasted sugar, some roasted notes and hints of salty licorice. Flavour is sweet with toasted sugar, some licorice and semi-dark chocolate. Very sweet and surprisingly low on roastiness; an IS with a feeling of dark Belgian strong.

olio (6392) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
75 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2014.
Pours black color with a small beige head. A bit off and weird aroma, some cherries, rum, can’t find peaches here. Sweet oily chocolate flavor, velvety palate, some faint peaches. Very sweet and tacky, alcohol is well hidden on the flavor, comes through a bit on the nose. Okay.

Jultsu (211) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Vintage 2012. Nopeasti häviävä vaahto, perusmusta. Huumaava intensiivinen tumma tuoksu, alkoholiakin? Suutuntuma ensin alkoholia, huumaavuutta, mietoa poltetta, jälkimaku liukuu pieneen tahmeuteen, alkoholisuuteen. Liukasta ja hyvää, mutta kaipailen edelleen sitä intensiivisyyttä.

750 ml bottle. Vintage 2012. Courtesy of Euphemos. Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Black colour with a small brown head. Alcohol, solvent, mild berries, roasted malt and some hops in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, sweet fruitiness, mild ashy dryness and mild coffee. Smooth. After the first shock this seems to be quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle @ ISKTR 2014

Pours pitch black with a tiny head. Aroma of roasty malts, wood, stingy rhum notes, hints of fruits. Taste is sweet, syrupy and boozy with notes of wood, hints of rhum, peaches and cocoa. Finish is sweet, roasty and slightly boozy with notes of rhum. Quite interesting, but not the best of the series.

Black pour from bomber, tan head. Mild oxidisation on aroma. Taste is very drinkable with very slight fruitiness. Just a very easy going big stout. Thin. Wish it wasn’t as oxidised as it is!

Cheers, Ash and Trey! Bottled May 30 2013. It?s been a while since I?ve had a Black Albert variant and I?d forgotten how awesome they look. Jet black, sense, dark brown head, creamy and long lasting, this looks amazing. The nose opens with creamy and fruity milk chocolate with the peaches surprisingly potent and the brown sugar and vanilla from the rum quite noticeable. This pairs well with the spicy, yeasty base beer, making me think of grilled peaches with rosemary. Mild mineral, mild herbal, moderate roast character are present. Grainy bitterness us low but an acidity is perceived. Moderately minty. Nice. The palate opens with a big, chewy Black Albert base, milk chocolate, roast, malted milk and brown sugar along with a mild peach flavor. Vanilla and brown sugar in a very rum like ratio are present on the mid palate. Spicy on the finish with green peppers , mint, chocolate and vanilla, this is great. Full in body,mildly and creamily carbonated, this feels awesome on the palate. Excellent stuff.
